“Don’t let the words get in the way.” — Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi
“In silence there is no dogma.” — Fr. Thomas Keating
Prayer Guidelines espoused by two men of God, Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi and Fr. Thomas Keating, wrote of their efforts to bring Contemplative Prayer into prominence among all God’s people, Jews, Christians, and other faiths as well.

They noted that there is some form of contemplative prayer in nearly every faith tradition, but both felt that it is of primary importance to unite the common roots of Jewish and Christian contemplative prayer in order to bring healing to their divisions from the past. Contemplative prayer is a magnificent bridge towards this end, as there are no doctrinal concerns in the silence of communion with our God.
Their Judeo-Christian Guidelines, which enhance interfaith collaboration in contemplative prayer, can be found on our Judeo-Christian Oneness Prayer page. We hope that more individuals and interfaith groups use this means of prayer to help bring God’s peoples together in friendship and worship.
